Storyline

Based upon true events Eduart, a young man raised in a cruel and oppressive family environment, leaves Albania with the dream of becoming a rock star and living a better life. His reckless character and the passions of his youth lead him to commit a murder in Athens. Chased by everyone, even by his own self, he is imprisoned under the harshest conditions. Eduart, with the help of a German doctor, learns to feel sympathy for others and guilt for his crime. His deep remorse will lead him from darkness to light. Like the Dostoevskian hero Raskolnikov, Eduart passes from crime to punishment, by daring to admit his guilt. In international criminal history, the "Eduart case" occurs once in a hundred years.

A hidden gem
3 January 2008 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

I was very pleasantly surprised by this film. The director successfully avoids all the cliché traps of a prison drama and manages to present a powerful account, reminiscent of Dostoevsky, of a man's journey to the most poignant realization that self-sacrifice is the requirement for the salvation of the soul.

The performances are esoteric and superb. Eshref Durmishi (Eduart) was brilliant in his portrayal of a disillusioned and reckless youngster who gradually discovers the meaning of suffering as a route to atonement. And the German doctor, movingly portrayed by André Hennicke, was simply astonishing in his desperate effort to find salvation at the darkest corners of the human condition.

Angeliki Antoniou's direction was powerful, austere and to the point, skilfully avoiding any superficial didacticism or melodrama. Great, solid film-making!
